political situation in the sense it's so close to an election. if the federal government is deemed not to have prepared people properly for this and it becomes another mini katrina situation, it could be literally an election wrecker for the president. conversely, if he handles this very well and it is a huge storm, that can win him the election. it can be politically very important. >> let's be clear. the record is obvious to me, the president has -- we saw what happened in the past in katrina. the president has been very aggressive putting his own boots on the ground. he came through the state of new jersey when we had flooding and the like. so this president to me, he's already proven that point and i know, i know from my work in preparing today, that the federal government is ready for this challenge and they will meet it head-on and deal with the crisis and the aftermath. and i know it's a political issue but i really want to reaffirm to people because the biggest mistakes i've seen often in these storms, especially in the obama administration, has not necessarily been the federal re

you are not going to do that why isn't a government run operation? anytime you put an entity they have to think of the bottom line. they are trying to think how to spend as little money as a possible. that's why they are not upgrading and why we're still in the 19th and 20th century with our electrical and the grid structure. what's their incentive? they have no competition. they are a monopoly. i think that has to change. we need to not allow a corporation to be able to -- it affects all of our lives. >> if they are out of power another week they will really be thinking it. let's turn to one of the reasons you think this is so important right now, in relation to the election is the voting. 90 million americans may not vote next week and your analysis is the vast majority of those, if they didn't vote, would probably vote for barack obama. it could cost him the election. >> "usa today" did a poll in august and prediction of 90 million will not vote next tuesday. when they asked if they had to vote for somebody who would you vote for and i think the number was something like 43% sa

government, the same thing again tomorrow, so the people will be able to stay home and take care of their homes and stay out of the way of emergency traffic that might be out on the road tonight and tomorrow. >> governor, continue your good work. i hope you get it all sorted there. it's going to be one hell of a mess, that's for sure. appreciate you joining the show tonight. >> thank you very much. we appreciate your wishes. >> joining me on the phone is another governor, bob mcdonnell of virginia, where more than a foot of rain is expected. thank you for joining me. >> thanks, piers. >> how bad are things there? >> we're going into day three plus for some of our people in southeast virginia, virginia beach started raining friday night. they've had some pretty significant flooding in and around norfolk and virginia beach, the eastern shore has been hit pretty hard. we've got a lot of additional folks called up, lot of state police, about 700 members of the national guard. the problems right now are primarily northern virginia, where they're having 40 mile an hour winds, gusts to 60

barack obama is exactly how our government should work all of the time. i couldn't agree more. it's been a massive breath of fresh air to see a republican leader like chris christie so prepared to be openly praiseworthy of a democrat president. what did you think? >> well, they are on the front lines of this crisis, the emergency workers reach out to residents, i've seen cooperation between port authority police, my fire department. nobody stops and asks you what your religion is, nobody stops and asks you what your political party affiliation is. folks are just rolling up their sleeves, getting to work. so what you're seeing in the field, what you're seeing with residents, with emergency responders, is what we should be seeing with all our elected leaders as well. the president of the united states, our governor and really, dozens of local elected leaders of all parties across the state, we're all pulling together. we're all in the same foxhole, all fighting the same enemy here. it's not refreshing, frankly, that's the standard that built america in the past and will help us forge

isn't it a government-run operation. any time an entity with a bottomline, they think about how to spend as little as possible and that's why they are not upgrading and we're in the 19th and 20th century with the grid, the whole infrastructure. what is their incentive? they have no competition. i think that has to change. we have to get not allow a corporation to be able to control something that affects all our lives. >> a lot of people will be thinking this, especially if they are out of power for another week. one of the reasons this is so important, is the voting, 19 million americans may not vote next week, and your analysis of this is the vast that mormajorid probably vote for barack obama. >> u.s. did a poll in august, and a prediction of 90 million will not vote next tuesday. when they ask people who didn't vote, if you had to vote who would you vote for? and i think the number was 43% would vote for obama, and 18% would vote for romney. the nonvoters are easily 2-1 or 3-1 in favor of obama. so the real challenge i think, is this is what i thought. i sent this out to twitte

the help of some money from the federal government, security was beefed up. and the games began. >> we had about 2,500 athletes that came in, did the parade of nations, walked all the way around. >> it was a great moment for him, i think. as one political pollster in utah said at the time, mitt romney could walk on water at that point. >> but not everyone agreed. >> mitt and i often had disagreements about how or what we thought the games were about. and i wasn't on his team, so to speak. >> it's a gold medal day for utah. >> ken bullock, no relation to frazier bullock, was on the organizing committee of the salt lake city olympics before and after romney was brought on board. he was a sort of my way or the highway kind of guy? >> absolutely, no question. to me, the games were about utah. it wasn't about mitt. >> bullock claims romney made the problems look worse than they really were, a calculated political move to ensure public success. >> did we need to raise revenue? were we short? yes. were we three years out? yes. big difference of the games being around the corner. >> so

authorities, work with local and national governments to make sure we're providing services based on what is needed in the moment. >> from what you're seeing, do you feel the state and federal backup from the authorities has been sufficient? has the planning been right? >> absolutely. this isn't something that just happens once in a blue moon. we work with national government authorities on a regular basis to make sure there won't be hiccups in services and we know what services will be provided by what organizations. it's the best way for us to not duplicate services. it's the west wbest way to sit t the table together to know what the picture will look like, whether when we're in the middle of the response or a couple days when we start the recovery process. >> thank you for joining me. keep up the good work. >> thank you. >> breaking news. the u.s. death toll from sandy has risen to 12. 62-year-old man killed by a falling tree in pennsylvania. we'll have more after the break. ♪ ♪ ♪ we're lucky, it's not every day you find a companion as loyal as a subaru. love. it's what mak
